Programming Windows: Anders (Premium)


Anders Hejlsberg has been doing the impossible since his first foray into programming language and compiler design in 1980. An engineering prodigy, Anders was born in and grew up in Denmark, and he was lucky enough to attend one of the first high schools in the country to offer its students access to a computer, an HP 2100.
